Western Welcome Scholarship Campaign
Make Western More Inclusive!

Western is launching an initiative called the Western Welcome Scholarship to improve access for students who, while qualified to attend Western, might not apply or accept an offer of admission due to the funding gap that exists between a WWU financial aid package and the typical cost to attend Western. This new scholarship effort will address WWU’s commitment to increasing access to higher education to historically underrepresented students, including those who are the first in their family to attend college.

While dozens of programs across Western rely on generous donors like you on Give Day, please consider supporting the newly established Western Welcome Scholarship. 

This new focus supports incoming students who may have difficulty paying tuition and perhaps thought a Western education was out of reach. Your gift means we can share this unique Western experience with even more deserving students, and the first $100,000 raised for the Western Welcome will be matched dollar-for-dollar, so you can have the most impact giving to this area. 

Thank you for supporting access to Western!
